I ended up buying three Billy Mealor Saddles for my three horses. Southern you are right, they are well made for sure..
I believe Billy retired form Saddle Making and lives in Lula, GA
I met him about 8 years ago, he makes great saddles...............
I have never heard of them I only trail ride and ride 6 days ago and go camping once a month and on those days am in the saddle 8 hours at a time. I own a Tucker Trail Saddle and have had it for 5 yrs and not a single problem. The comfort is amazing and the quality is top notch. I would recommend Tuckers to anyone
